2012 Best Budget Niche Brand of the Year

This year, Fyrinnae, which is a brand that is already highly appreciated and lauded for its original colors and formulas, plus for its ever-famous Pixie Epoxy primer, they launched pressed eyeshadows.  Ahh–if you, like me, still much prefer your pressed over loose in eye color (I love loose eye colors, but I very rarely reach for them!), this was such a welcomed release.  It was particularly impressive how well they managed to translate the loose color to the pressed form. You could tell that a lot of care went into the rollout of the pressed eyeshadows.  Fyrinnae also makes an assortment of intriguing, not-your-everyday lip colors in the form of Lip Lustres.  One facet of Fyrinnae that is really nice the options to purchase sample sizes of many of their products, which enables you to try an assortment and only commit fully to your favorites.
